Microsoft has revealed that Cortana, its Windows Phone virtual assistant, can speak and understand Klingon. Microsoft is also well aware of the irony in teaching Cortana, who is based on a Halo character, all about the world of Star Trek.
Microsoft has confirmed that the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 is rolling out to Nokia 930 handsets. With it comes Cortana support for users here in the UK as well as a fix for the phone's purple tint issue. It'll reportedly be available for other Windows Phone devices sometime next month.
